    I saw this film at the 2013 Arab Film Festival in San Francisco and it was one of the best ones of the 40+ I saw. Creative, moving and unforgetable. Watch it! Thank you Jessica Habie for making it.

    A film detailing the devastation of suppressed and oppressed creativity (and, therefore, life), Mars at Sunrise is a lyrical film that must be seen to appreciate just how daring it really is. Between painting, interpretive dance, and an evocative soundtrack, the film constructs a world of the subconscious between its two main characters. Part poem, part narrative, part documentary, Mars at Sunrise raises questions typically not considered in the Israel-Palestine conflict by focusing on two artists caught in the middle. Check it out!

    Beautifully told story. Accomplished acting and imaginative narrative. Sound and editing move the story forward in a poetic yet dynamic way.

    The fragmented narrative mirrors the way trauma impacts memory and interrupts linear thought. This is a beautiful and important film
